de Holanda, Hamilton Quinteto, Brasilianos 3
Hamilton de Holanda impresses us again with his mandolin virtuosity on Brasilianos 3, a stunning addition to his soundtrack of Brazilian instrumental music. Accompanied by the formidable musicians of his Quinteto: André Vasconcellos, acoustic bass; Gabriel Grossi, harmonica; Marcio Bahia, drums; Daniel Santiago on guitar; and featuring the legendary and incomparable Milton Nascimento, gives strength and credence to the sound of the Quinteto and to de Holanda’s compositions. Brasilianos 3, recorded in Rio de Janeiro in 2011, with these young lions of the Brazilian instrumental music scene, gives us but a glimpse of what Brazil has to offer. Original compositions written or co-written by de Holanda and guitarist, Daniel Santiago continue to move the listener with their purity. The Quinteto is touring extensively in Europe and South America to bring their music to the people.
